Listen I consider a difference between UPMC Hospitals and UPMC insurance (idk about the paid insurance, I have state insurance through UPMC and it’s great),

Both the insurance and the hospitals are run with cutthroat precision and with one goal in mind, making money.

I worked somewhat closely with CCBH, which is the managed care organization for mental health services for people who are covered by UPMC insurance. They have employees whose whole job is to study which services they're losing money on and how they can avoid approving that service for patients.
